Experiment 10: The Physics of Flight, Part 1 Andrew Dickson Introduction: The purpose of this laboratory is to examine the physical principles of flying objects. There were three parts to this laboratory. The first was to examine Archimedes Principle by using four balls of different masses. These balls were placed into a beaker of water to test their buoyancy. The second part of the lab was to test Bernoulli’s Principle which states that when air is moving with a high velocity above the surface of a piece of paper it creates a condition of lower pressure than the still air below the surface of the paper which will produce lift. We used a piece of paper and a fan to show this part of the experiment. The third part of the experiment was to test the effects of drag. We used the fan again and a brass rod that had two different sized circles on the ends. We placed the circles in front of the fan to test how much drag was produced by the different sizes of the circles. Data:
